For 3 weeks the foundation will offer more than 80 innovative courses to children and young people between 12 and 18 years, which will allow them to live an entertaining learning experience in summer.

In Santiago and Valparaíso, the Summer Academy of Fundación Consejo de Curso was launched, an initiative that seeks to promote education in a fun and innovative way. The Liceo 7 in Providencia, the National Institute in Santiago Centro and the Greece School of Valparaíso are the headquarters of the Academy, which works with children and young people from 6th grade to 4th grade.

A physical activity workshop and two academics are the courses that each assistant must choose, among those who can find: Zumba, Crossfit, Physical theater, Taekwondo, Videogame programming, Youtubers: the art of cinema in thirty seconds, Astronomy: exploring time and space, Physics for future Presidents, Colonization on Mars, Literary creation and Kamishibai theater of paper, among others. An opportunity to dream, discover and share among friends.

Course Council also has an initiative that shares the same vision of Summer Academy: "Summer Trampoline", aimed at children in transition to 3rd and 4th grade, whose intensive program seeks to take advantage of the holidays to inspire children to read for fun and enhance their cross-cutting skills. Verano Trampolín is a winning project of the 2015 Innovative Fund of Fundación Colunga, and also has the support of Fundación Chile.

There are still places to participate in the Summer Academy, at the Valparaíso headquarters. To apply there are no requirements and those selected are chosen by lot. More information in
